Heavy storms have battered the park over the past couple of days. One of the biggest trees in the park behind Cumbernauld House has been felled completely. The iconic tree at the top of the hill in the park has had it’s largest branch which was climbed on by generations of Cumbernauld children knocked down completely which is a real shame and we’re sure that many residents will remember climbing here as children.
Lots of branches are off of the trees too with the path at the back of the allotments completely covered by branches and leaves. really heavy areas of it. The council will have their work cut our trying to tidy up this mess that’s for sure.
It’s going to take fair amount of work to clear up the park and it’s going to look a little differently when it’s all done that’s for sure.
